Management comes in two basic types: day-to-day managerial activity, and project management. Many companies are in succession of projects. All management consultancies and most service provision fall into this category. Indeed any activity that has a beginning, middle and an end can be classed as a project. However, only a small part of a management course is concerned with project management, despite its wide remit; this short course aims to give those involved or to be involved in projects the basic skills and techniques to deliver their project to specification, within budget and to required quality standards.
